Happy Thanksgiving!


I'm busy whipping up pies and stuffing a turkey, but I wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, Everyone!


Whether you're Canadian or not, may today bring you much fodder for your seasonal stories! And I don't mean the conflict matter, but rather the resolution kind. Blessing to you all!


Surrendering to Him,

Eileen
P.S. We got our first frost last night. I feel strangely exhilarated by it! Perhaps we'll turn the fireplace on tonight and curl up to a good movie, or even better, a great book! Care to join me?

Eileen,
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope the smell of pies in the air and the crackling of the fireplace give you good writing inspiration.

Happy Thanksgiving! We've had frosts in the morning for several weeks (and it's supposed to be temperate here). I just feel cold :)

Hi Eileen -

Happy Thanksgiving! Yummy, the food sounds scrumptious.

Brrr, our temps are in the 40's and 50's.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Have a great Thanksgiving. We haven't had a frost but I expect it soon and the fireplace is roaring as I type this.

Happy Thanksgiving! No frost here, but it is unseasonably wet and cool. (which I love, but I confess to being ready for the sun to come out!)

Curling up with a book is what I did for most of the day Saturday. It was deliciously indulgent!

Robyn Campbell said...

Happy Thanksgiving Eileen. Hope you had a lot of yummy stuff to eat and a lot to be thankful for my friend. Be safe! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Enjoy the company and the food! CAn you believe it was snowing in Iowa on Saturday? Big, fat flakes and everything!

KelliGirl said...

Wow, Thanksgiving in October. Who knew? Although I love the idea of enjoying the holiday and getting a break before Christmas. I always feel like the starter pistol for the Christmas season goes as soon as we finish the last crumbs of our pumpkin pie. Hope your day was happy.

And oh, to curl up with a book by the fire. What a wonderful idea!

Frost? What's that? Heh heh. Just kidding. We will get it here in NM, it will just take another month.

Jill Kemerer said...

Happy Turkey Day!! Have a blessed holiday and yes, I'd like to join you for a movie and cozy fire. :)

Happy Thanksgiving Eileen! I pray God's richest blessing for you. He has given us another opportunity to bless His name for all the great things He has done.

It's Columbus Day where I am, but there is still so much to be thankful for.

Stephanie Faris said...

No holiday here...but now I know how the rest of the world feels on 4th of July! Lots of celebrating Canadians on here today.

There is nothing better on a cold day than curling up with a book, of course a warm day is also a good day for curling up with a book. Any day is a good day for reading. :)
